Rangers must fear the worst as senior star suffers potential bombshell for Celtic clash

COMMENT

Rangers goalkeeper Wes Foderingham could miss this weekend’s Old Firm clash with Celtic in the Scottish Premiership after a shoulder injury ruled him out of win over Hearts on Sunday – and the Gers desperately need the shot-stopper available for the trip to Celtic Park.

Foderingham was replaced by Jak Alnwick in the win over Hearts but the former Newcastle man did not come close to being as convincing as Foderingham between the sticks against the Jambos before Gers boss Graeme Murty confirmed to the Scottish Sun that his senior star was a doubt for the clash with Celtic.

The 27-year-old as been one of Rangers’ most consistent performers over the last few years and was rewarded earlier this season with a new contract to keep him at Ibrox until 2020.

The former Swindon keeper is the undisputed number one at Ibrox and the Gers are a much weaker team without him in it – despite still having areas he can really improve on too.

Foderingham has been a near ever-present since joining the Gers in 2015 and missing out on the trip to Celtic Park is a huge blow to the Gers with Murty’s back four hardly inspiring confidence in recent weeks.

It does not appear Foderingham’s injury is anything serious so he should be back in action sooner rather than later but with every game between now and the end of the season being vital for the Gers, losing him for any of them will be a huge blow.
